Bird Poems

To many, birds are seen as nothing more than winged animals, devoid of mystery and character, but this does them a great disservice. They have inspired great men throughout the ages all the way back to the very first men who wished to join them in the skies. It is no surprise that the sound of birds singing in the morning is so often romanticized they inspire and delight us in equal measure. They live a life that we frequently covet; who can honestly say they have never craved the freedom to simply fly away to wherever your heart desires? We used to dream of flying through the skies with birds. We still do.

What is it that you see?

PARROTS

Parrots are a funny bunch −
They often curse and swear −
You really cannot take them out to lunch
When your grandmamma is there.

They like to stride atop a cage,
Much as ..........

TO BE A BIRD

The Eagle soars, then comes to rest,
